Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market is hosting a Design-A-Bag Contest to encourage customers to use reusable bags.
The company is inviting customers to submit their original bag designs through www.freshandeasy. com/designabag through May 31.
The winning design will be printed on a reusable bag that will be sold at all Fresh & Easy stores.
Customers 18 or older can submit a design. From those submissions, a panel of judges will select 10 semi-finalists based on originality and creativity. The winning bag design will be chosen exclusively by Friends of Fresh & Easy, customers who have signed up online to receive the latest company news and discounts. Semi-finalists will each receive a $100 gift card.
The winning designer will win a year's worth of groceries.
Glendale's closest Fresh & Easy location is at 4211 Eagle Rock Blvd., in Eagle Rock.
